Hello! I am here today to share a simple way to do both mirror stamping and mirror die cutting. It is simple and gives great results!

Mirror stamping is a wonderful way to get new looks from your stamps. I also feel like having two mirrored images on a card gives a unique, modern look.
My first card features the gorgeous bird image from the Spellbinders Sparrow Stamps and Die Set (SSS | SB). Using the Neat and Tangled Backdrop Stamp (SSS | | EH | N&T), I am able to create a mirror image, too! (Be sure to watch the video on how to do this – it is difficult to explain without the visual. I used my MISTI stamping tool to make the process fail-proof, but I also show how to do the technique with an acrylic block.) I find VersaFine Onyx Black Ink is excellent for this technique… and then I clear heat embossed.
I colored my birdies with Arteza Watercolor Real Brush Pens and Tonic Aqua Shimmer Pens. (I will share more about these products in a future video.) The sentiment is from the Birch Press Just Because Stamp Set and I white heat embossed the Ink Blot Shop Plaid Background Stamp on the background for a bit of subtle texture. Oh – and the Lucy’s Cards Iridescent Jewels are the perfect accents!
Today I am a part of a Spellbinders blog hop. I am really enjoying their products lately… and am blown away by their selection of dies.
The next stop on the hop is the blog of Becca Feeken. (You can always start at the beginning of the hop on the Spellbinders blog.)
